Oh, the suspense!

Tonight, apparently, the country will have a new American Idol.

I'm wondering if I should be more keyed up over the prospect of a prematurely gray, spastic dude holding such a coveted title, or if I should try not to roll my eyes if another America's sweetheart takes the crown.

Maybe I would be able to look past the cheap tears Paula Abdul sheds over performances, Simon Cowell's snide remarks and that other dude (I'm sure he does something annoying), if I watched the show on a regular basis. But I don't ... and for good reason - I work nights and I'd like to think there has got to be more interesting programming than American Idol. ... Right?!?

I guess it's an American Idol thing, and I just don't understand.
